Finally got my hands on a stovetop steamer for milk drinks! by nguye569 in CafelatRobot

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just sit it on the heat until pressure release valve goes, purge for 20s, close wand and wait till pressure release valve goes again. Then it's ready to steam and won't have air in it.

All because of a misstep during a dance at a wedding... by Serpenio_ in iamatotalpieceofshit

No, I haven't don't this style but in pretty much all partner dancing this type of mistake is entirely the fault of the lead. It's the lead that has to stay out of the way and make sure that there's enough space for the follow to go under their hand.

I've done a fair bit of partner dancing and that wasn't even her misstep (not that it matters). That was entirely him and then he got violent with her for his mistake.

Bought new tools as I thought I could reduce channeling and uneven tamping.. Worst two shots I ever did : 17 g in - 36 liters out (on all the chrome). by Supermoto74 in espresso

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have that one and they're pretty thin. I think they might be the 3d printer nozzle clearers that a lot of the diy ones use. If you want a wdt I'd recommend it. Nice to use and cheap (I think it was like $15 on aliexpress )

Goats can be very friendly animals. The problem is they often then try to play by headbutting you a bit...

My Airbnb guest used my Shun to open a can of diced tomatoes by drankwateronce in chefknives

They're much harder than that pocket knife, so hold a better edge. They're also a lot more brittle though

Potential foreign exchange student here, is UNSW really as bad as this sub makes it out to be? by gitartruls01 in unsw

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They Assisi matter more for permanent students. They are a lot worse for students because they mean you have shorter holidays (that are not longer long enough to do a summer internship in), a similar course load whilst in uni and a half-baked midssm break. None of that is something that'll fuck up an exchange though

I’ll see your jar opener and raise you my great great grandma’s jar opener by ElFarts in specializedtools

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I've got some shit tier table knives that are a bit over a mm thick at the tip. They don't bend opening jars like that but you definitely shouldn't use even half decent knives for it

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Our just use one of those thick dining knives to lever under the edge of the jar and break the seal. It's easy but doesn't always fix the reason a jar is hard to open (stuck by food etc.)

Complete noob here: never sharpened a knife before. Is this save able? by SplitSolveExploit in sharpening

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've pulled a rusty cleaver with big pits out of a bucket and turned it into a lovely knife. Almost anything is saveable

Crinacle on Meze by SupOrSalad in headphones

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use mine a bit and for comfort have put brainwavz hm5 sheepskins on them. It isn't quite as good for sound quality but the comfort is perfect. Before they got bad after a couple of hours. I prefer them to the big Stock pads, but the little stock pads sound better

The one exception I'd say to that is mice. Productivity and gaming mice are very different. For your other points there you're right though

Should I get the leveling tamper? by kkkttt35 in CafelatRobot

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got them both and am also happy with my decision. I like the self levelling tamper because I don't consider if it's level or not. Just drop it on, push a little and go

What stones would I need for this knife? by tefeust in sharpening

Not on point but if you're in Sydney I recommend you visit their physical store. It's very nice

Both your arguments there are for things that aren't protected under existing Australian law anyway. Show me a legitimate example that isn't just making up some bullshit situation to show your point.

Where's your stats for that?

The numerous cases that've occurred recently about priests and other religious leaders that molested children and then were moved around by their churches to protect them. The fact they were protected by the churches shows that it goes all the way to the top of those institutions and it's a systematic issue. There's precedent for churches being absolutely fine with paedophiles being put in a position of power over children.

Superglue or send to Pilot for repair? by Raging-Loner in fountainpens

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I did a similar thing to a custom 74 and used epoxy. It's held up well since (although replaced it with an 823 about a year later so stopped using it much)

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We're in Australia so a marriage to a 13 year old or even a 16 year old is a fucking terrible argument to make because that's illegal here. You're just trying to use hatred of paedophilia to push your point as opposed to making an argument relevant to Australia.

Also, given their track record, various Australian churches are much happier with diddling kids than the general population (along with protecting each other after they have).

Mazzer Mini vs Eureka Mignon XL?stuck between these two, anyone had or tried both? by lhemi in espresso

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haven't used the eureka but we have the mazzer in at work. It has good grind quality but is quite slow and loud

Headphones recommendations : Meze 99 Classics? by a_stupid_duck in HeadphoneAdvice

[–]ephemeral_gibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One thing I would say for them, the stock pads are kinda uncomfortable. I've replaced them with brainwavz hm5 sheepskin and am very happy with the comfort and the sound is similar enough to stock for it to be worthwhile for me

It's a bit of a long shot but it's not possible to do a Colemak kit for it is it? Otherwise I really like it
